Do I need a makeup artist and hair stylist for my wedding?
Sure, most of us do our own hair and makeup every day, and are pretty happy with the results… most of the time! But this is your wedding! A stylist will help you create an amazing look for your wedding day. An experienced stylist will consider your hair type, face shape, dress design and style of wedding and advise you of the best options to have you looking amazing. Plus, an experienced makeup artist will ensure the products used will be reflected correctly in your wedding photos.
Do I need a different person for my makeup and my hair?
Not necessarily, some people are qualified in both hair and makeup, others prefer to specialise in either hair or makeup. Consider how many people will wish to have hair and makeup services on your wedding day. Include your bridesmaids, mother, and other important family and friends. You may need more than one person to achieve all of this mastery in a reasonable time frame.
Do I need a hair and makeup trial?
Yes! It’s important to work through ideas and concepts with your makeup artist and hair stylist. Scour the internet and magazines and show these images to your makeup artist and hair stylist. It’s also a great idea to have your hair colour sorted, accessories like a veil, and maybe hair extensions already in hand for your hair trial. You can plan to have your trial on a special day and enjoy your new look. You can also ask your stylist to slightly modify your look so that your partner doesn’t discover your fabulous wedding day look.
Do all makeup artists and hair stylists come to you on your wedding day?
No. Some do, and others will prefer you travel to them. A salon environment with a number of artists can be a great way to have your bridal party prepared in a shorter time frame. Otherwise, some people prefer to relax at home or in their hotel without worrying about travel and parking.
How much does wedding hair styling and makeup application cost?
The cost of your wedding hair stylist and makeup artist will vary according to their experience, the intricacy of the style chosen (blow-dry versus up-do), the location and the number of people requiring services for your wedding. Some artists have hair and makeup packages starting from $150, however $300+ for the Brides hair and makeup is more usual. Some hair and makeup professionals will charge by the hour to remain available for touch-ups throughout your wedding day.
Who pays for wedding day hair and makeup?
Often the Bride pays for herself, and sometimes contributes to, or pays for her bridal party also. The Brides parents may also cover beauty costs.
When should I book my hair stylist and makeup artist?
Some makeup artists and hair stylists book out 6 to 12 months in advance. So, it’s never too early to start creating a shortlist and booking.
What other beauty services might I need for my wedding day?
Manicure, pedicure, waxing, tanning, teeth whitening, massage and other wellness and beauty services might need to be scheduled in the lead-up to your wedding. You might also like to consider a new signature perfume for the day, or wear a fragrance with sentimental value.
